ownership and regulation. we found that the us has the highest gun ownership rate in the world with an average of 88 guns per 100 people. and even the number two country, yemen, has significantly fewer.with about 55 per 100 people. and the united states has, by far, the most gun-related homicides of any other developed country. in 2011, the u-s had more than 91-hundred gun-related murders.compared to japan, which had just 11. and that may have something to do with the strict regulations the japanese government has in place. first off.handgun ownership is illegal.even holding a handgun, let alone firing one, is illegal and can get you one to 10 years in prison. the only type of gun you can legally own is a shotgun.and the process to buy one is complicated. you have to attend an all- day class and pass a written test. you also have to pass a shooting range class. then you have to take a mental test and drug test.which the police will have one file. then you have to pass a background check.

5:37pm
pull, i saw someone in the back of the charlotte move, and i knew that if i fired and missed, i could end up hitting them." >> "i'm not beating myself up because i didn't shoot him, but i know after he saw me, i think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself." and >>catherine: he and his friend and the baby were not injured. and meli stands by his decision not to pull the trigger that day. the gunman went on to kill himself - after killing two people. >> house speaker john boehner headed back to the white house today - for more fiscal cliff talks with the president. boehner is now agreeing to higher tax rates on the wealthiest americans and an automatic extension of the federal debt limit. it's the third time in eight days that the men have met to negotiate. it sounds like progress - but there's no deal yet. now, instead of $280,000, is
